Episode Summary

1969 World Series, Game 5: Orioles at Mets
Baltimore Orioles 3 at New York Mets 5, F -- The Miracle Mets complete the upset over the heavily-favored Baltimore Orioles, as slugger Donn Clendenon and light-hitting Al Weis each homered to back the five-hit pitching of Jerry Koosman. A key play in the sixth featured Cleon Jones being plunked on the foot by Baltimore starter Dave McNally. Jones was not originally awarded the base, but manager Gil Hodges retrieved the ball and pointed out the telltale black shoe-polish on the ball as proof. Rattled, McNally surrendered a two-run homer to the next batter, Clendenon, bringing the Mets within a run and shifting the momentum irrevocably toward New York. The Mets tacked on three more runs in the next two innings and the Amazing' upset was complete.moreless
